COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors. Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes. It is particularly nice with spicy seafood and with fine cheeses.

Crystal clear gold pour, regenerative white head. Nose is hard fruit, spice, Belgian yeast. Leans sweet. Middle has a champagne evervescence, light kilned malt, apple, and some unripe pear. Finish is dry and expansive. Competing with Duvel, better than many champagnes, great apperitive.

Gary (1972) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
750ml . 12.50 . Im fine paying that in one context, but only when Im not underwhelmed and I kinda was . I blame myself , drunk and at an American themed burger bar - this was the baller option. I guess subconsciously I still love Brooklyn brewing, their flavoursome Chocolate Stout is a long standing favourite of mine , and Garrett Oliver seems cool as far as beer celebrities go . Pours bright sun kissed orange with a subtle white foam ... Nose is orange peel , coriander spice, striking yeast notes , bready malts . It drinks this way from drunken hazy interpretation.... But nothing special about this American/Belgian marriage.

OminouSC2 (593) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2016
Sweet smell with banana, yeast and some honey. Taste is alcohol, yeast, medium sweet with sugar. It never becomes too sweet and the tastes linger on in a nice, long finish. Solid.

Wow rating number 1311 for this beer. Here is my drop in the bucket. Lovely lager. Decent malty profile with yeasty flavour, mild bubblegum, mildly sweet, no notable hops. Not overly Belgian but a very nice beer. Cheers.
